will be interesting to see how many companies follow Tim Cook's example, will definitely put a crimp in monthly sales figures though no doubt Apple can afford it can the rest?

I'm looking forward to getting in at or around the bottom.  Most likely around summer time.  Should be sweet :D

But ... we  need longs to enter the market and create rallies for us to sell into :P:D

Quote

“Right now, we view investing in the current environment using the hackneyed phrase of ‘catching a falling knife,’” said Richard Bernstein, chief executive of Richard Bernstein Advisors in a note to investors and conference call. “We see no need to rush into markets.”

Hi, can you quickly tell me the funding for long and short positions in the following equity indices:

SPX i.e, US 500 cash (€1)
SX5E i.e., EU Stocks 50 Cash (€1)
Volatility Index (EUR1 Contract)


These do not show up in the instrument details.

Thank you.

Lets see what happens when the futures open

If the "patriots" that bought the Trump speech to the nation keep buying the futures?🤠

And if we get some stimulus in asia when they start up the day?

or if the "punters" at IG are right and we get a selloff?

Could go either way😎

Donald J. Trump was truly magnificent in his address to the nation.

A real leader. 

America is in safe hands.

Dax spread was just bumped up to 7 points which is a long way from the normal 1 though can't deny there is fearsome volatility especially notable on a Renko chart where price is flying around all over the place and too quick to catch in most cases.

Similar situation to a big news release where the only way to catch it is by having pending orders waiting at levels as price goes though as even the requote function just can't keep up.

Messy morning. American markets closed, UK markets very volatile.

IG - crashing. Which seems to be the norm.
